Hitting menopause can be a stressful time with a lot of discomfort and unwelcome distractions from your busy daily life. Many supplements and menopause aids claim to help reduce symptoms and return your body to a comfortable state. Swanson Menopause Essential is a supplement claiming to do just that.
The fluctuations of hormones in the body at the time of the menopause can create hot flashes and night sweats. The ingredients in Swanson Menopause Essential claim to combat these symptoms by bringing the balance back to the female hormones to a similar state to their child-bearing years.
The key ingredients of Swanson Menopause Essential are Chaste tree berry and black cohosh. The flavanoids in chaste tree berry target the pituitary gland, which in turn has an effect on certain hormones, in a women’s case balancing them and bringing up levels of progesterone. This ingredient can also be used for the menstrual cycle to help keep it regular. It is helpful in treating irregular bleeding in menopause.
Black cohosh is a potent ingredient that originated from ancient Chinese medicine. It is used to regulate the production of estrogen. Therefore the combination of the two ingredients are effective to control unusual hormone unbalances during menopause as the levels of progesterone and estrogen in the body must be at an appropriate level for side effects to reduce. Black cohosh is especially known for treating hot flashes and keeping a healthy reproductive system.
Soy isoflavones are also present in Swanson Menopause Essential. Soy has been used in Asian cultures for thousands of years and studies show Asian women who have a lot of soy in their diet experience much less of the symptoms Western women do during the menopause. Soy beans are nutritious if eaten but the soy isoflavone extract can directly target menopausal hot flashes and postmenopausal bone loss.
As well as the obvious side effects, a lack of libido is a less talked about but no less important problem during menopause. Women often look for a cure for this to save relationships with their partners. The ingredients present in this supplement for this are damiana and Dong Quai. As there is some history of chaste tree berry being used to reduce sex drive it is important to feature something that combats this and the symptom of low libido.
This supplement contains a mix of powerful ingredients, which should reduce most symptoms in women hopefully returning their bodies back to a comfortable state.
